Deep garnet through and through, with a beautiful magenta at the very edge of the glass.
Bright and fruity, with fresh blackberry, boysenberry, and blueberry balanced by black olive, sweet tobacco leaf, vanilla bean, violet petal, rosemary, sage, and black peppercorn.
Absolutely delicious, with a palate similar to the nose, highlighted by fresh and candied berries, sweet tobacco, smoked meat, sweet vanilla, sage, and spicy black pepper.
Luscious and almost impossibly soft, this is a truly fantastic wine with a well integrated finish highlighted by structured tannins and a very balanced acidity.
A classic French meal of steak frites. Season the ribeye with herbes de Provence and grill to perfection, completing the meal with a dollop of Roquefort cheese on the still warm steak.
